Day 16: Black and White

Today started out nicely with the sun shining and the birds singing.  It appears that they are confused because I saw a group of robins perched in a tree.  It is a big day when I see the first robin of the season, but I'm afraid they might be mistaken about the start of spring; the groundhog hasn't even made his prediction yet.

I took a stroll on the riverwalk in Naperville.  I found a heart someone made in the snow.  It seems people are walking all over it.  I think snowy pictures are viewed best in black and white.  Any color that does remain is dull and less dramatic.  

I'm feeling a bit of cabin fever.  I'd love to go outside and walk in a t-shirt and jeans and feel the sun warm my skin.  I want to see flowers emerging from buds on the trees and wake up to the song of birds.  I want to walk Kendra in the sunlit morning and see the sunlight after I come out of my grad school classes.  I hope the robins are right. 


  1. I love your pictures with the snow. The bridge looks like it would inspire artists everywhere. There is much beauty in winter, and you have captured it.

  2. Hello Fellow Traveler,
